Latest update on the severe weather threat for New Hampshire this evening.
A Weather Advisory is issued if after review of pertinent weather information it is determined that escalating emergency conditions may be possible.
Intermittent rain showers will push through the area now through 5pm. Lightning appears unlikely with most of this activity, but there could be a few isolated strikes after 3pm. There is still a threat for severe weather this evening, but it appears that most of the very strong activity will stay to the south. Isolated severe storms are possible between 5pm and 10pm with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph, hail, and lightning being the main threats.
An isolated tornado cannot be completely ruled out.
The greatest threat for severe weather is in the southern part of the state and is considerably less in northern areas. The severe threat should end around 10pm, but showers and isolated thunderstorms could linger through the overnight hours.
Showers and isolated thunderstorms should come to an end by 7am Friday and dry conditions will prevail for the remainder of the morning. Rainfall through 7am Friday could reach 1-2 inches in some locations.
